Update from Susan Redline, NSRR Director - March 16, 2018
We hope you or your colleagues/trainees have benefited from data from the NSRR. At this time, despite sharing about 1 TB of data per week to the scientific community, supporting 100s of investigators and students, and promoting advanced signal processing and standardized procedures for visualizing and exploring data, the National Institutes of Health has no plans to continue the funding mechanism that is needed to support NSRR beyond 2018. If you are interested in this resource, or resources like this, please provide your feedback to NIH by March 19th. They are interested in how the NSRR has helped your research or education. You can send a simple email with key points or just say that NSRR is useful for your work to: email@example.com or read the full announcement: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-HL-17-571.html
The NIH recently published a Request for Information (RFI) that seeks feedback on needs for the scientific research community. Responses to this request will help inform NIH on how to invest in future resources and infrastructure.
We encourage NSRR users to respond to this Request for Information to let NIH know of your interest in sleep and physiological signal data and relevant tools and if appropriate, relevance of the NSRR to your research and education interests.
Thank you for your interest. We hope that community responses will help inform the NIH on the types of scientific research resources, such as the NSRR, that should be supported in the future. Responses are due by March 19, 2018.
Thank you! Please reach out to us if you have any questions.
